Jacques Adnet

Jacques Adnet (1900-1984) was a French art deco modernist designer, architect and interior designer. He is known for his furniture designs in leather. (from Wikipidia) Jacques pieces have become increasingly collectible lately as people realize both the lasting beauty and the importance of his contributions to the modern design movement. You can see his influence in our line of furniture as we share his fondness with the juxtaposition of warm organic materials like like leather against cooler, more industrial steel.

This chair was in the inventory of ModernOne, one block down from us. Ben has the eye of a passionate collector and seasoned curator.

He designed for Hermes and, in my opinion, helped define what makes them great.
